    “It’s just ripped our guts again.”

    An Australian family who lost two relatives when Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared in March lost two more family members when flight MH17 crashed in Ukraine on Thursday.

    Her brother, Greg Burrows, told reporters: “It’s just ripped our guts again.”

    It is believed 298 people were on board flight MH17 when it crashed on its way to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam.

    Four of the Britons have now been named as Glenn Thomas, John Alder, Liam Sweeney, and Richard Mayne.

    Thomas was one of number of people travelling to an international HIV conference in Melbourne.
